The Billy Reid Warehouse Sale: Men’s Edition

A quick dos and don’ts list for tackling the Billy Reid warehouse sale, running now through Saturday (though I suspect the good stuff will be gone by this afternoon) at 3720 Canton Street.

DO

- Get there as soon as possible. I arrived at 9:45 this morning, and the shoes/boots selection was already picked over. There are still plenty of the Billy Reid/K-Swiss collabo sneakers left, but, let’s be honest, those have always kind of looked like garbage. The dozens of pairs available back up my point.

DON’T

– Ride your bike. Despite the fact that I had a backpack, I could only buy what I could cram into the sack slung over my shoulders. Also, I didn’t want to look like a child molester wearing a new peacoat, on a bike, on a 80-degree day.

And, yes, I realize I’m probably the only person dumb enough to ride my bike to this sale.

DO

– Go a size down. Reid fashions his shirts wide, and his cuffs even wider. It’s a distressing and slightly emasculating quirk. Case: I’m 5’10”, 170 pounds. I like my shirts slim. I left with a small dress shirt, with the slim fitting.

DO

– Expect to wait. Check-out line took me 20 minutes.

DON’T

– Get all hung up on changing in an open room with dudes everywhere. This is a warehouse sale; there are no changing rooms for men. There are, however, three mirrors that seem to have been stolen from a college dorm room.

DO

– Check out the ties. They’re all $19. They’re a bit slimmer than I wear, but if that’s your thing, go for it.

DON’T

– Wait. Seriously. Go. Whatever you’re doing at work isn’t really that important. You’re a surgeon you say? I don’t believe you.
